Toni Collette keeps a low profile in a baseball cap and sunglasses as she walks her dog in Sydney
Toni Collette is bouncing back following her shock split from ex-husband Dave Galafassi last year.
The actress, 50, looked strong and confident as she took her dog for a walk in Sydney on Friday.
She showed off her fit physique in a pair of sporty black leggings and a tank top that said ‘LOVE LIVE’ in capital letters.
In an attempt to keep a low profile, the Hereditary wore a pair of dark sunglasses and a baseball cap.
She appeared to have no makeup on, instead going for a more natural look.
Toni reportedly struggled to face work commitments, such as interviews, after her split with Dave made headlines at the end of last year.
A longtime friend of Toni told Woman’s Day earlier this year that she was devastated that their split became so public.
‘She has not recovered from her split and she is not likely to anytime soon,’ the friend told the publication at the time.
‘Toni’s a marvel at how she’s able to pull herself together and keep functioning.
‘The promotional side of movies is something she usually enjoys, but not when her life is a mess.’
However, Collette has shut down speculation that she’s struggled following the split, telling a reporter from The Times in March that she’s fine.
‘I’m not having a shaky time at all,’ she insisted. ‘That’s a big assumption.’
She continued, ‘I’m doing very well. Thank you for your concern. It’s not something I really want to talk about publicly, but I am fine. More than fine.’
The couple share daughter Sage, 14, and son Arlo, 11, together.
Dave, who was a drummer in an indie rock band when he met the About a Boy star, confirmed their split in December 2022 when he was pictured passionately kissing chiropractor Shannon Egan at Manly Beach in Sydney.
Daily Mail Australia contacted Toni’s management about the photos, and hours later she announced the couple had split in a joint statement released on her newly reactivated Instagram account.
‘It is with grace and gratitude that we announce we are divorcing,’ the pair wrote.
‘We’re united in our decision and part with continuing respect and care for each other.
‘Our kids are of paramount importance to us and we will continue to thrive as a family, albeit a different shape. We’re thankful for the space and love you grant us as we evolve and move through this transition peacefully. Big thanks.’
The pair met in 2002 at the launch of Galafassi’s band’s debut album Metal Detector in Sydney, and their second encounter came just a few days later at a house party.
They were married with Buddhist rituals on her property at Berry on the NSW south coast less than a year after they met, in January 2003.
